Originally developed for US Military communications personnel, this invaluable tool is a specialized, industrial-grade multi-tool for work on fiber optic, IT, and cable systems. Loaded with industry-specific features, the Cable Dawg will save you multiple trips to the toolbox.
Made for U.S. Military communications personnel and telecom professionals out in the field, the Cable Dawg is a specialized, industrial grade multitool for work on fiber optic, IT, and satellite cable systems. Every single tool a communications specialist needs is combined into one - spring-loaded wire and cable cutters, CAT5 jacket cutter, RJ45 crimper, wire strippers, combo-edge knife and multiple drivers. The Cable Dawg attacks the job efficiently, safely and quickly, cutting out multiple trips to the toolbox, base camp or work truck.
*In 2012 the Cable Dawg received an update to the RJ45 crimper that more confidently connects commercially available plugs.

I personally own one of these and have found it to be an absolutely fantastic tool. The CAT-5 jacket stripper on mine doesn't cut very well, resulting in sometimes jagged strips, but that's a small thing in comparison to the other great tools built into this device! I'd recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat and WISH that I'd had one in the field!
